"Infinity in the Palm of Her Hand takes on nothing less than the creation myth of Western culture."

--Salman Rushdie

The winner of the prestigious 2008 Biblioteca Breve Prize--joining such renowned Latin American luminaries as Mario Vargas Llosa and Carlos Fuentes--acclaimed poet and novelist Gioconda Belli's Infinity in the Palm of Her Hand is a wholly creative and original re-imagining of the story of Adam and Eve and original sin. In a brilliant translation by Margaret Sayers Peyden, this remarkable new look at the Book of Genesis will appeal to readers of the novels of Isabel Allende, Anne Rice's Jesus Chronicles, and to all lovers of great imaginative literature.
